"Rite of Passage" ∞ Currumbin, QLD - Australia by 

Sunrise at Currumbin, QLD – Australia.

This was my very first shoot with the new medium format camera back in September – pretty exciting! However, I made the fatal mistake of trying to compose my images with the standard waist-level viewfinder (rather than the prism I had bought) for this shoot, and found I couldn’t see what I was composing 90% of the time due to the pre-dawn light (or lack thereof!). I think I had about a 1 degree angle in which I could actually see some image in the ground glass!

Because of this I didn’t hold very high hopes for my first shoot with medium format, but I was pleasantly surprised when I got the slides back to see that 4 of the 10 images I shot are actually quite nice. More to come soon!

Shot on Velvia 50 transparency film with a Mamiya RB67, 50mm C lens, B+W polariser and Lee filters.

    I’ve been hanging out for this for ages Jason, wondering when am I going to see some shots from the big Mamiya. Well, it was worth the wait, I’m so pleased to have been able to help speed the process up. LOVE IT!

  • Mate I was planning to BM you soon – the best is yet to come from this 1st roll I think! We also just got back from a couple of weeks doing the southern NSW coastline, shot 12 rolls there, and really really can’t wait to get into them! (got such a backlog of images/other stuff going on I’m only getting around to Septembers stuff now!)

    In any case, I owe you many thanks (and probably a beer or seven) for your advice regarding this beast mate!
